Because the Buddha's teachings are considered to be priceless, and in keeping with the teachings and spirit of generosity or dana, this retreat is freely offered. Donations are welcomed.

There will be two dana baskets set out at the retreat. One basket will be for you to offer dana for the teacher and a separate basket for organizational costs incurred by Victoria IMS. The suggested donation for organizational costs for this two-day event is $40. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Patience, Continuity, and Wisdom

A Non-Residential Weekend of Practice
Vance Pryor

This period of practice will emphasize the cultivation of patience, continuity of mindful awareness, and wise investigation of experience as a basis for meditation practice. We will explore bringing the practice of meditation into our daily lives in an integrated way. There will be ample time for both silent meditation along with question and answer periods.

Vance Pryor, Psy.D. has been practicing insight meditation since 1999. He has been deeply influenced by the teachings of U Pandita and U Tejaniya. He is currently being mentored by Steve Armstrong and Kamala Masters, and is participating in IMS’s 2017-2021 Teacher Training Program.

Thank you.
